Did You Know?


In the novels, Arya has never shot even one single arrow. The contents of the letter Sansa wrote to Robb are referred to, but not actually read, and Arya has no idea about it. Jorah Mormont still has no idea about his father's death and it was was never avenged. Benjen Stark's fate is still unknown, as is the identity of Coldhands. Gendry is still with the Brotherhood, who never sold him to Melisandre. See more »


Since it has become a common knowledge that White Walkers can be destroyed by either fire, dragonglass or Valyrian steel, Gendry should have armed himself with any of those like his companions (Jon - Valyrian steel sword; Jorah - dragonglass dagger; Beric and Thoros - flaming swords). Instead he is armed with a warhammer, which is useless against White Walkers. See more »

Tormund Giantsbane: Gingers are beautiful. We are kissed by fire. Just like you.
Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane: Don't point your fucking finger at me.

Game of Thrones Season 7! The season that turned something that could be considered the TV Version of Lord of the Rings, Has become the TV Version of Transformers.
23 August 2017 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode has really exposed a lot of D&D's writing laziness, I get that when you don't have a break after season 4 for a year and come back to write the final material for the series. But this season has suffered so much, and the fact that critics are giving it a pass cause it's Game of Thrones is nonsense and critics should really be ashamed of themselves if they think this episode didn't even remotely detract from the show's renowned attention to logic and writing.

Credit where credit is due (although there is very little of it), the CGI effects for the Three Dragons is at a perfect stage and they are really well done. And the opening scene with the 7 Characters bonding was done well. That's all.

Everything else is just put your head in your hands bad. From cheesy dialogue to unrealistic time constraints, to incredibly dumb character decisions to absolutely no repercussions to those characters dumb decisions, to very cringe inducing chemistry by Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington.

There are good 'Moments' in this episode, but there is no good 'Story' to this episode. which is very unfortunate as it now places a looming cloud over the show's ongoing quality stance and it also makes for less exciting scenes in future if the writers continue to go down the same route they did with this episode, and I say that as a fan who expected this episode (like many) to be one of the greatest episodes of all-time and considering that the show is in it's final season with a full year break to continue the end story, it's very disappointing and somewhat insulting for a show with such quality become very 'silly'.

I hope the show runners/writers and HBO understand that they have a reputation to uphold, and that is to give the best quality show's, we wouldn't want this to go down the True Blood final season route. Season 7 Part 2 must make sure they are as good as there earlier seasons in quality or else this show will just be like True Blood, An excellent beginning and a terrible finish. And considering HBO has done brilliant finishes to there previous titles. IE Boardwalk Empire, Sopranos, OZ. This one should be no different.
